Jimmy Durkin

I cover mostly San Jose State football for the San Jose Mercury News/Bay Area News Group, but also fill in from time to time with the 49ers, Warriors, A's and Giants.

    Junkie gets in just under (actually over, but he caught a break) the wire and immediately goes right to the top with the defending champion DonFan at 29. Kyle slides into 2nd place with a cool 28. Nice work guys.

    There are still a lot of games to be played, and if I read the rules correctly, the games count more each round, so this is a very preliminary snapshot. But make no mistake those 3 at the top right now know their stuff.

    What is cool is that you can go into each bracket from the bracket challenge page where you made your picks and look at the leaderboard for that bracket. Then you can see who everyone picked to win it all. And if you click on their name, you can each person’s entire bracket.

    DonFan is a gambler, as he is the only person who didn’t pick Carondelet to win the girls’ D2 bracket. He chose Dublin and if they pull it off, he’ll gain ground on everyone. Maybe he knows their two big girls will be back and healthy in time for the finals?

    Dang American girls picked the upset and you didnt come through for me. Leaderboard will come more clearer after tonight.

  • Jimmy Durkin

    Prep Fan read it correctly, the games count for more points and the rounds continue. So the leader board will certainly change a bit, but I will do my best to post this after each night that games occur.
